It better damned well shoot good!
I will be running several factory loads, Winchester 140, Hornady 140 ELD match and 143 Eld X
Also have some Berger 130 OTM Hybrid bullets to load

If the 143 Eld-X shoot well I would be happy to have one bullet for long range steel and hunting. I like the 178 AMAX for a 308 because they work well at long range or hunting.

test target

I'm waiting on glass and bipod. Before I take my new toy out. I will be hand loading using RL-17 and H4350, trying to get hold of the ELDs for reloading is like unicorn horn. Bergers, Hornady BTHP match 140 and matchkings galore tho.

Well, hopefully with a little break in and load development, you can wring out some accuracy out of that thing. Wink

It must not like the 142 grainers.  It missed the dot entirely but did so with consistency.

All these posts about custom builds and 6.5 Creedmoor is giving me the bug too.  I've used Southern for Bartlein barrels but have to rethink about them doing the complete build for me.

This is the calibre of choice for hunting rabbits in Ausie wormholes.

Charles, you and I are on the same page here. As it so happens, I'm planning a build very similar to that right now, also in 6.5 Creed. I currently have the exact same stock, inletted for the Badger bottom metal, and an 8-twist Sendero profile 22" barrel, except my barrel is a Bartlein, 5R. I plan to scope it with my SS 5-20. I don't have the action yet, but I too plan to use the Defiant Deviant w/ .062 firing pin. Haven't decided which trigger or mounts I'll get yet.

Maybe I'll get it finished by this time next year.
